Can I use over-the-counter progesterone?

No. The progesterone-only pills made available over the counter in July 2021 are intended for use as a contraceptive, not for hormone replacement therapy (HRT). The progesterone used in HRT is a bioidentical hormone, utrogestan or cyclogest, rather than the progestin that is used for birth control, so transfeminine people should be careful not to use contraceptive pills as their HRT.
